    You’ve got enough of these to go, right? I can’t tell you how much I’ve been looking forward to this…Report

    I’m a horrible writer, so I will leave this virtual certainty for someone better than I.

    Cyber security is not yet taken anywhere as seriously as it should be. In the next decade we will see the digital equivalent of the triangle shirt waste fire, but on at least a regional scale if not global. The question is not if but when. That it has not happened yet is a testament to lack of people THAT sadistic, deranged, or just angry.Report

    For those of you who have been putting it off, don’t be George R.R. Martin.

    This comment is down here for a reason. I started at least six comments attached to yours, and decided that all of them detracted from it. Some things simply speak for themselves. Among the efforts…

    There was “I almost strangled trying to avoid spitting wine on my keyboard…” which was true.

    There was “Dialect is not dialog…” but that was just whining.

    There was “There is no try. There is only write, or not write.” Which, if the point isn’t already obvious, was an appeal to people to submit something. I want Burt to work his fingers down to the bone editing so that I can have a week full of fun reading this stuff.Report
